was elected as a representative 2010. he served as an investment counsel for the u.s. government reform committee. gentlemen, welcome. it's good to have you here. gentleman you are now both on record as saying you would be open to raising revenue as part of plan to balance the budget and congressman's dold your opponent says as a general proposition he supports 70% and cuts versus 30% in new revenues. what percentage breakdowns would you support? dold: i'm not so sure i have a percentage breakdown. what i've done his work with my colleagues on the other side of the aisle and the only bipartisan budget that has come to the florida generation and frankly i think that is what we need to be talking about. need to be talking about how we can get folks together republicans and democrats alike running an organization i know that the only successful organizations are those that come together and actually solve problems and have some sort of compromise. >> moderator: you were asked if you would accept a 1 dollar increase for
. making demands on their government, demands for transparency and accountability. if they do not find alternatives, they could be in trouble. if you have a business, to help us solve this saudi arabia problem, you would be in a competitive position. this is not a theory. it works. i had the opportunity last week to congratulate ceo of electro- motor diesel, now part of the caterpillar company, on a contract for locomotives. a little over two years ago, a previous executive was in my office bemoaning the reality that he was about to lose a competitive bid to another country based on costs. even though we have had provided advocacy to the ministry on its behalf. he was sure that the contract award would be on price. when i asked him for his value proposition, he had little to offer other than our locomotives are better than theirs. they lost. fortunately, the saudi arabians agreed to take the winning entry on approval basis for two years. so they had a chance. a new team came forward and we discussed at length what it takes to win. the principles are fairly straightforward. first, find
end willing to listen to governments but requests not to publish -- are we looking at kind of a new era because of the internet, the fragmentation of the media environment? what kind of challenges might there be for the classification receipt -- regime and for prosecutors going for? >> you mean, a broader journalist puts that's one question. it certainly complicates the issue. let's put it that way. a blogger is not the gray lady of the new york times. that's all i have to say about the subject. [laughter] >> put your finger on today's challenge. this is not just worrying about the occasional article that shows up in the front page of the post and the new york times. your thinking about now whole new types of journalists or media that don't operate under the constraints that are traditional media do. and i give a lot of credit to the "washington post" and the others. when they have classified information that they think would it -- jeopardize information to believe they bring the fact that they have that information to the government and say, look, make the case for why we should no
to see how your government works directly, c-span is the only place to go. >> until a few months ago, charles haldeman of freddie mac. he began the job in 2096 months after the company was taken over by the federal government. mr. haldeman spoke about the housing market and financial regulations at the john f. kennedy school of government. this is just under an hour. >> i'm a member of the faculty here at the kennedy school at a romani school of business and government. it's a pleasure to welcome all of you to this year's lecture, which is funded by nasd, which is now in the, the private broker of the u.s. industry. the focus is on financial regulation and each year we have had a leading public official responsible in some ways for u.s. regulation. this year, our speaker is a tiny bit of a stretch, but not really much at all. ed haldeman was ceo of freddie mac from a 2009 to just a few months ago. while in that role, ed was not really a formal regulator. he was responsible for running a very large public financial institution. freddie mac and its sibling, fannie mae are what are call
, it will get rid of hopefully a lot of the special interests, whic takes the government out of the intervention and provides a clear playing field for everyone. this could turn around our economy, if done soon and done right. >> brenda: jonas, we don't know exactly what kind of overhaul we would get and isn't that adding uncertainty? wouldn't that keep people from hiring? >> moreover, it doesn't really, neither plan really addresses the deficit and the need for revenues. let's leave that problem off the table and talk about the job situation. i like what romney wantso do, the code has a lot of deductions that shouldn'te there, we should just lower rates and get at them. and in fixing that, if you pay 25%, and then you get deduct the mortgage or don't get to deduct the mortgage and pay 20%. if you're net-net not getting taxed any more, i don't see how that's actually going to lead to more spending and i tell you a little dangerous in the short run, the housing market is still-- and to pull out major deductions the home mortgage deduction being one of them. he didn't say he was going to do that,
help you focus on $47,000, according to government data, that each american household share of e debt we owe to foreign couries in hock, to foreign countries. and 10 grand of thato china alone. so, when you look at those numbers, is it any surprise the world has our number, to ben stein, charles payne, dagen mcdowell and adam lashinsky, dr. payne, great to have you back. >> good to be here. >> the u.s. government is flat bro, but the public isn't broke, that's the shame our average share of the debt that he government wildly throws away and spends like crazy and can't put on your, on any kind of control of, but this is where we are, this is the inflection point, where we are, at the moment of truth where we keep running this up we're asking americans you want the total to be more than that. essentiallwe've become a total welfare country, a total welfare state unless somehow the american public puts their foot down, government won't do it. >> what i don't like about it, it does put it in a darkly human maybe selfish conscious, this is our share, to folks abroad. >> just to folks abroad
thaÑaÑaÑaÑaÑaÑñ of labor unions and good government organizations say mitt romney and his family made millions from investments as a result of the auto bailout but did not reveal the windfall in his june 1st, 2012 financial disclosure report to the office of government ethics. uaw president bob king says mitt romney and his family personally profited by at least $15.3 million from the 2009 auto bailout, yet did not disclose that in financial statements to run for president. "the public needs to know how much mitt romney bet against the american worker with his investment." at an auto workers' union hall in toledo, ohio, king and investigative journalist greg palast described ann and mitt romney's involvement in a hedge fund that purchased delphi automotive, a key supplier of parts to general motors, and how delphi's new owners got rid of 25,000 workers, dumped pensions and leveraged more than $12 billion in rescue funds by threatening to withold key auto parts from reaching gm's assembly line. "the hedge fund held up steering columns and other things that had gm not gotten them, they
with government, you will shut up. we just don't see much except that the piece published in "the wall street journal" a few weeks ago. >> i mean come on someone with some of those cases. they go back now about five or six years. i think in the middle of the bush administration i've talked to some of the flag officers, retired flag officers, who got phone calls, threatening that their pension rights were going to be under review and things like that. i think it was a completely outrageous statement at this and why -- i think obviously serving military officers is one thing, and didn't have all sorts of obligations that they limit directly their participation in public debate, public discussion. but once they are retired and completely free to speak, and i think they can play a meaningful role in public debate conversation. and then to use the power of government to silence them is completely outrageous. >> they're not completely legally free. >> secrets. >> they will all have signed, you know, agreements not to talk about classified material, even postretirement. and there, too, i would just
is that i spent 25 years working for the federal government in a lot of agencies. those agencies comprise 40% of our discretionary budget. the misapplication of resources going on in our federal government should be stopped. they should be listening to the constituents. thank you very much. >> thank you. i am running for the united states senate because i want to make a difference. i believe america needs a new generation of leadership. what is wrong with america is extreme politics and extreme wealth. my opponent to represent the status quo. charlie summer's represents extreme politics and angus king represents extreme wealth. what i am offering the state of maine is someone who is not beholden to outside interests. we need a new generation of leadership. i hope to have your support. >> my name is andrew ian dodge. i am in this race because i believe the issues of liberty, freedom, and individual rights are being trampled on left and right, whether it is a resting -- arresting a farmer for selling raw milk. i have a touch of ethnicity about me and i am the youngest in the race. i hope we ha
as possible. >> i can promise you the federal government will work closely with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> the president will try to avoid red tape and bureaucracy can helping states that were slammed by sandy and yesterday's yesterday was void of about tuesday's election which is something that depov gov christy appreciated . >> the president and i are big boys and business of politics and we are aware that the election is in six district attorneys and i asked him where he is campaign doing next . but most of the time we talked about the problems. >> governor christy is one of mitt romney's important surrogates and delivering the key note in the republican national convention two monthses ago. mitt romney is careful not to campaign too fely while people are in the east coast. as he made his closing argument. he made sure everyone in the event was thinking about everyone who is hurting. >> please go vote early and send a dollar extra to the red cross. for our folks that are in harm's way. >> today mitt romney will campaign in the state of virgini
incredibly involved in trying to help the u.s. government think more intelligently about competitiveness and entrepreneurship in particular. then josh linkner, a local star here who runs detroit venture partners as i'm sure many of you know, if you're from detroit, you certainly know that, a supporter of this event which we're very grateful for, and i think symbolic of the incredible new energy that's developing in detroit. and i should also say that josh created a company calls eprize in 1999 here in detroit. it's been operating all this time. two weeks ago it sold for a nice exit. [applause] so here's the story of a local company that came from here, went all the way and, you know, he's done real well with that. meanwhile, he's invested in a ton of other companies. so i just want to start by asking you, steve, you know, when i told you about this, you immediately dropped it. why did you think techonomy detroit was a good idea? >> well, i think it's a great idea. i think it's great you're willing to shine a spotlight on detroit. it's not just about detroit, the story about entrepreneurs
from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector that's even better. we're borrowing $1.6 trillion more this year than we're taking in. >> including disaster relief? >> we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it is simply immoral in my view. for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debt and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we'll all be dead and gone before it's paid off makes no sense at all. >> just to recap, governor romney, at least the governor romney of 2011, believed the government could not afford programs like fema and i said it was immoral and made no sense to keep spending money on disaster relief and even better to send these to the private sector. when reached for a statement, romney's campaign of 2012 told us, governor romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdictions. as the first responders states are in
without power. >> flights are canceled. subways are shut down. >> the federal government is closed. the new york stock exchange is closed. >> we're a week from election day. >> just seven days to go. >> i don't give a damn about election day. >> this storm is not yet over. >> the president has been all over this, and he deserves great credit. >> the election will take care of itself. >> i will tell you, this administration could give a damn less about election day. >> they talked about people having a hard time. >> governor romney did attend an event in ohio. >> why ohio? why choose ohio? >> his campaign describes it as a storm relief event. >> if you have more canned goods, bring them along. >> you need fema and need support. >> fema is about to run out of money. how do you deal with something like that. >> take something from the federal government and send it back to the states. >> you need fema and you need support. >> and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> mitt romney can't show up on the east coast right now. he has to st
the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i think there are going to be a lot of doubts and frustrations in terms of what exactly is going to happen here soon because it's going to take a while. obviously it's going to take a while. andrea? >> ron a
government has stepped in to help. this is the third hurricane i've covered in my lifetime, andrew, katrina and now this. we are at the point where the population gets furious and they turn on the government. the government can just not handle the huge, huge logistical requirements that happen after a storm like this. could this actually turn on the president at some point here? >> reporter: i don't think so. i think what the president has had the opportunity to do is show americans that he was involved in an effort that the country was rallying behind and do his job in a way that got praise by the keynote speaker at the republican convention, chris christie, very tough critic of the president otherwise. so i don't think many voters are going to blame president obama for what's going on right now, and leave aside the fact that the states in which the difficulties are occurring db new york, new jersey, connecticut are all reliantly democratic states. what is much more important to the outcome of this election, michelle, is what's going on behind me at this afl-cio phone bank where union volu
years in the federal government. those agencies comprise about 40% of our discretionary budget. they are not doing that and they should be looking at the constituents. thank you very much. >> moderator: senator cynthia dill? dill: i am running because i want to make a difference. i believe america needs a new generation of leadership. what is wrong with the congress is extreme politics and in this particular race, by two major opponents represent the status quo. on one hand we have charlie summers and on the other hand we have angus king. today's "new york times" characterizes this race as karl rove versus michael bloomberg. what i am offering the people of the state of maine is to independence, someone who is not local and out-of-state money but only beholden to you and your family. so i look forward to tonight's discussion. we do need a new generation of leadership and i'm pleased to be in the race and i hope to have your support. >> moderator: thank you andrew ian dodge? dodge: those of you in maine might recognize my name. we have been here since before maine was a state an
government in the short term. >> yeah. >> right now people are just trying to deal with their immediate needs, moving in with neighbors, staying with friends. we have heard reports that some utility companies are talking about perhaps turning off water services, for example, because there could be contamination in the system. people are hunkering down and the work is just beginning. in this town, for example, the roads are covered with -- some places, several feet of sand. they're impassablimpassable. impossible to get in and out of some communities up and down the shoreline and in new jersey. again, to think of at this point of a lot of relief supplies arriving, people are hunkering down trying to deal with the near term right now. >> let me correct myself. it's congressman steve israel of new york saying he is in contact with fee many officials. needing more detail on the plan there. to your point, you have certain reaction with the individuals of point pleasant. it's a layer of response but nevertheless the president is landing at a critical time when i do think people want to hear as many
about government covering their health-care costs. i am on medicare now, certainly the government takes my. when i was working, you have no idea how many times, because i was the person who put the insurance payments into the computer when i came to the hospital, and you have no idea how the insurance companies to turn down a thing this. host: even though they make their comments known about the presidential race, we are focusing on cost and said races in your state. a couple of stories, at this one out of new york when it comes to hurricane sandy, federal money do not up to states and hurricane aftermath, the first trickle of federal funds start to go out. 29 million to rebuild highways. $30 million to hire temporary workers to help with the cleanup. it is certainly to the multibillion dollar bill for the government. the federal office has 7.5 billion to spend. an additional 5 billion could be made available withinan offsets required in other government programs. that is in the new york times. when it comes to how the money is concerned, this out of the new york post. the state labor d
need government to step in and solve these problems. most of the heroic things have been done by businesses, families and churches. president barack obama has dealt with this crisis. it did not hurt that the governor of new jersey, you know, had very complimentary things to say about him. we will see if this caused a bit of a stall in the bit from a momentum we have seen over the last few weeks. connell: we stopped to asking questions like that the past couple days, for obvious reasons. we try to look at these sites that aggregate the polls. on average now it is all tied up nationally. i am sure the national polls that it was as we get to the last few days. the president seems to have a lead in ohio. how would you handicap it, if you are looking at it back i have been looking at the polls all morning. they do show, basically, a dead heat right now. probably had a two or three-point lead a week or two ago. the storm, a lot of people -- connell: i have to interrupt you. we have breaking news now with a briefing of the mayor, michael bloomberg. >> let me caution everyone listenin
it with you all the time? >> everywhere i go. concealed weapon. u.s. government gave me that. lost a lot of good friends of mine fighting for this country for nothing. for nothing. all because of the u.s. government. >> reporter: you're mad at the government. >> very mad at the government. yeah, i got a lot of hate in me. i got a lot of built up anger, a lot of hurt. a lot of hurt. >> reporter: pastor hartsfield knows all about hurt. >> it hurts deeply and i struggled for a long time not to hate those people that did that. good will overcome evil. right will overcome wrong. >> reporter: on this night, you can only hope the pastor's right. indeed. thanks for watching abc news. "good morning america" will be waiting for you in the morning with the latest on hurricane sandy. we're always online at abcnews.com. have a safe weekend, america. jimmy kimmel, right here next. >>> tonight on "jimmy kimmel live" -- aziz ansari. >> i got mr. ethic. it was all white kids. how about the little brown boy that looks like the most adorable piece of carmel ever. >> as of friday morning, lindsay lohan was
at the state level with the federal government pitching in, helping out as they can. the president arrived in atlantic city. he was greet at the bottom of the stairs by an individual on the republican side that's praised him so e fusively and that's chris christie. they got aboard marine one. administrator fugate was with them. they traveled about an hour. long beach island, ship bottom, seaside heights, seaside heights, in particular, as we have seen from our media helicopters hit particularly hard. the president has landed on the way now to a community center that's sheltered as many as 200 at the worst part of the storm at a place outside of atlantic city. there we expect the president to tour the shelter, helping out those in distress and then make a statement, steve. i think we can expect the president to try to project calm, concern, empathy, authority if you will. what we'll not see the president project is any sort of overt political age toll this. this is all very serious and chris christie by his side as he had all afternoon. >> it's still tore and talk about the tone of the pres
- stabilizing influence, and mason governments are facing government. and these opportunists are may be unpredictable. and i was use iraq as an example. there were lots of opportunists and iraq. iran, turkey, saudi arabia, kuwait, nonstate actors all opportunists trying to get finish of a situation or how to set project itself around the world? what does it mean to us as we look for the future conflicts? the character of conflict is changing by the operational environment conflict is change. but in my mind the fundamental nature of work remains the same. that's the struggle to influence populations in governance. that has not changed. so it's how we continue to understand that struggle within the new operational environment and context that we see it. the army has great 237 years ago to defend this nation comes to the interests of states abroad, and in my opinion that imperative has not changed. so as i got a force for the future, the one thing i tell everyone is that we're starting from a position of strength. and why do i say that? because of the army specifically with the most com
. there is a sense that these kind of situations will make people turn and embrace big government, but you're already seeing a lot of of flaws in the federal response, fema not getting a lot of these generators that they promised online quickly, so, i don't see any kind of a national move toward bigger government as a result. >> paul: kim, the other big story this week is that the romney campaign has been expanding the field. the electoral field moving into pennsylvania with a very big ad buy much bigger than the obama campaign and even talking a little how the fact that minnesota could be into play and the president was in wisconsin, and close to campaign in iowa, places where he should, you think he would have locked up. do you take this expansion of the field seriously? >> yeah, and i think that this is part of the momentum argument for romney, now, you've had the obama campaign desperately trying to tamp that down saying it's not true, it's not real. the reality is what you've seen since the denver debate is mitt romney pulling ahead in a lot of places, now, that momentum has slowed down a little
rehearsed emergency response protocols by many institutions and government. there is a collective sense of denial too about how poorly presented the city is for events of this scale. how poorly prepared have we been, steve? >> well, very, especially about flood waters. irene, tropical storm irene was only six months ago and the water, you remember, washed right up to the top of the battery but didn't come over. it wasn't hard to image then what a surge of ten or 11 or 12 feet higher might have done. and yet, it seems, and we'll have time to sort all of this south when we get through this emergency, that vy little was done to protect underground infrastructure from a very predictable surge. first of all. second of all, the extent to which the transportation and power system were vulnerable to this kind of weather, was known for ten years, predicted. again it's not clear that either in the private sector or the public sector, the city was illingo iest in what are frankly very large sums necessary to prevent this kind of disruption. >> rose: let me turn to you, paul. in your piece i think
the recession officially ended, that may spare government, but it won't stimulate the private sector than it did four years ago. >> that's what mitt romney said today at kinsler construction services in ames, iowa. you know that blissful moment waiting for the other shoe to drop? you can see david letterman scrutinizing the ties. to look for the tag to see where it's made. you know you're in that moment right now? as noted at think progress today, kinsler construction services benefitted from almost $700,000 from the stimulus that mr. romney says did no good for any companies in the private sector. you can try to make the argument that the stimulus program did not help private businesses even though the evidence shows the opposite is true. but he you're trying to make that false argument, that the stimulus program didn't help any private businesses, as you are standing at a private business that the stimulus helped, that is a particular kind of implicit lie. and the rest of us can see that lie as it is unraveled in realtime by reporting. even if you the teller of that particular lie do not seem
